Jibba Jabba’s spoken word shenanigans at The Cumberland Arms have been a breath of fresh air to the North East culture scene for so long now, that the countdown to the last show at the venue next month is tinged with a little bit of sadness. Though that’s all made a lot easier, when you look at the phenomenal shows they’ll be putting on before they leave us; with another splendid line-up for the penultimate gig on Thursday 28th April.

This month sees them bringing us a chance to see tender, intelligent, honest poetry from Alix Alixandra; smart, sharp storytelling from comedian Catherine Scott; and headliner Ross Sutherland showcasing his standing as one of the most gifted and creative poets around. It’s held together by the warmth and exuberance of host Jenni Pascoe, with the ever special open mic section sure to steal the spotlight when given the opportunity. It’s always been a great way to spend a Thursday night, so go see the magic of Jibba Jabba while you still can.

Jibba Jabba is at The Cumberland Arms, Newcastle on Thursday 28th April.
